Sharing My Thoughts On The Memory Maker at Walt Disney World!

Disclosure: At Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, we were gifted a complimentary one day memory maker to experience. All opinions expressed are my own! I love photography, it is a true treat to me to spend time thoughtfully snapping photos of my family's adventures. I love reliving the experience after the fact while I cull, edit, and even plan out the ones I'll print. Most of my house is decorated in photos as our family mission is really to collect…

Let’s Talk About Extracurriculars!

As I've been sharing more and more content about this new territory I'm in as an elementary school mama, I knew I needed to get some content up about intentionally choosing extracurricular activities as a family. It's a really delicate balancing act, so that the whole family doesn't end up depleted. I actually love being busy. I thrive on routine and schedule, but if I'm not a little careful I end up worn down and exhausted after the fact. So,…

Fun Stuff For Halloween At LEGOLAND Florida!

It is so fun living close enough to LEGOLAND Florida that we can drive down for the day! My boys at 7 & 5 are the perfect age for all that LEGOLAND has to offer. It's no mystery they are LEGO obsessed, so its a special experience to head down to LEGOLAND and see their favorite characters brought to life. Earlier this year, we had the chance to head down to LEGOLAND Florida to see the new LEGO Movie World.…

Budget Friendly Halloween Activities For The Family!

I really love making the holidays special for my family. I think it is so easy to get sucked into the mundane, so I love that holidays provide us with an opportunity to just be out of our ordinary! Plus, I love candy. So, it's easy to see why I'm a big Halloween fan. Kids love to dress up and go run around, I love the fall colors, and the list just goes on and on! Place your holds at…

Easy & Frugal Sandlot/Baseball Inspired Party

I love a good birthday party theme, I love taking whatever my kids are into in that season and turning it into something fun! Sandlot has been the boys' favorite movie for this summer, they've been requesting to watch it every day that it rains so when I suggested we do a Sandlot/Baseball theme party, Liam quickly approved. I knew that it needed to be simple and inexpensive, because his birthday falls right around the start of the school year…

Why We Love Family Movie Night + Fall Family Movie Picks

Every Friday night, we have family movie night. I know many families have a designated night they do this, but we were late to the game. We actually didn't make it an official weekly thing until our son started kindergarten. I want to kick myself for that, because it has been a grounding time for us weekly and I always look forward to it. For the longest time, we alternated between pizza ordered out and frozen pizza. As of 2019,…

Back to School with the Jetson Scooter!

This post was sponsored by Best Buy. All opinions expressed are my own. I just wanted to chat briefly about a fun product you can pick up at Best Buy as we head into the cooler fall months! Jetson Quest Electric Scooter is a perfect way to get around campus! It would be an awesome gift for someone off to college! I love its foldable design, the premium lithium battery that provides a range up to 18 miles, and the…

Fall Outdoor Activities The Whole Family Will ACTUALLY Enjoy!

Fall, in my opinion, is the best time to get outside as a family. The summer heat is starting to go away but the holiday busyness and winter cold hasn't set in JUST yet. Today, I'm sharing a list of fall activities the whole family will genuinely enjoy. 1) Camping- This fall, we plan to become a family that camps. We've been rounding up camping supplies over the summer, keeping an eye out at the dollar spot, yard sales, and…

What To Do In Jacksonville, Florida! (Family Travel Edition.)

It's hard for me to believe we have been here long enough to have favorites! However, we are here, six months in and I feel passionate that Jacksonville, Florida should be on your family's "to visit" list. Jacksonville has some incredibly affordable accommodation options, is centrally located to Orlando and St. Augustine and has a host of amazing things to do as a family.1) The beach. It's probably no secret that we spend as much time as we possibly can…

The Strategy I’m Putting In Place To Cancel Witching Hour!

I talked on this in stories, but since those expire after 24 hours I wanted to dive into this on the blog. BECAUSE YA'LL WERE HERE FOR IT. I was so relieved it wasn't just me. Last year, I had one son in kindergarten and one son in afternoon preschool. I'd be so excited to grab them from school, only to find them tired and emotional and hungry and all the emotions. It's HARD at that age, they have to…
